I Love Shopping

I Love Shopping (Confessions of a Shopaholic) è un film del 2009 diretto da P. J. Hogan, ispirato ai romanzi I Love Shopping e I love shopping a New York di Sophie Kinsella.

Rebecca Bloomwood, chiamata anche Becky, è una ragazza totalmente irresponsabile, ossessionata dallo shopping, che ha accumulato debiti fino a 17.000 dollari. Fin da bambina sogna di scrivere per la rivista di moda Alette, invece finisce a lavorare per una rivista economica Far fortuna risparmiando, il cui capo-redattore è Luke Brandon, che fa subito breccia nel cuore di Becky.

Love the Amazon wish list and that I can mark buying some place else on it. The slochie stocking caps were on 3 different lists. I am making not buying but because of the list I know what colors they want.We ship all we can to my stepson and wife the live 1/2 the country away but the do come home for Christmas. I print out picture of what they are getting and wrap that for them to open from under the tree.I also do 4 gift bags that I carry on my car with me during the holiday season. They have a stocking hat, a pair of gloves, a $5 McDonalds gift card, an apple, an orange, a can of tuna, a package of mac and cheese, a single serving size vegetable juice usually V8, a couple of granola type bars and a couple of candy bars. I hand these out to the soles I see begging at corners when I am out shopping

Question 2: How do you feel about shoppingAnswer: Well, for me, shopping is a soothing and relaxing experience. It is about buying some essential commodities and sometimes we can spend on few lifestyle products. But, I would like to mention that I mostly shop for clothes.

Question 5: Which is the most popular place for shopping in your home-townAnswer: Actually, there are many places in my town which are famous for shopping. They are well-known for different reasons. For instance, Rajpur Road is famous for various brands outlets and designer wear shops whereas Paltan Market and Indira market are the places which are popular among the crowd for the affordability and vast collection of clothes along with essential commodities. Cannaught Place is known for high tech electronic gadgets such as mobiles and computers etc.

Very occasionally I enjoy shopping simply for the purpose on trying on new styles to see if they might suit me, but even then I have to shop in very short spurts or I start to get tired/annoyed/bored. It seems I am the most curmudgeonly of your readers!

You see it in every shopping mall: men sitting outside the clothing store waiting for the wife to come out. Why is it that women love to try on every pair of shoes before deciding whether to buy anything at all, and men want to get out of the mall seconds after they get in

It's all in the genes, according to Daniel Kruger, an evolutionary psychologist at the University of Michigan. Kruger argues that it's natural for women to love to shop and men to hate it because of our evolutionary past.

That's why, during this holiday season, you're likely to see a lot of men cooling their heels, and a lot of women shopping until they drop. It's mandated (or should we say human-dated) by the evolutionary progress that guided us out of the woods and into the mall.

\"We had been visiting quaint little villages in the middle of winter, when there weren't many tourists, and when we reached the tourist mecca of Prague, the guys wanted to go and see all the historical sites and the girls wanted to go shopping,\" Kruger said in a telephone interview. \"We (the guys) couldn't imagine why they would want to do that.\"

The women, it seems, had gone gathering, and the men, of course, had gone hunting, culturally speaking. Surely, he thought, there must be a deeply rooted reason why girls are so different from boys, even when it comes to shopping.

When he returned to the Ann Arbor campus, Kruger and a research assistant, Dreyson Byker, also a male, began poring over the anthropological literature to see if they could find parallels between the ancestral cultures from which humans have continued to evolve, and the current citadel of modern society, the shopping mall.

Ancestral women, however, did most of the gathering, so they navigated by knowing which berry patch was the most productive last season, even if they didn't know the difference between east and west, and they probably gathered food alongside other female members of the tribe, so gathering, like today's shopping, was probably a social event. As Kruger noted in his study, \"Gathering is much more conducive to socialization than is stalking game.\"

The researchers recruited 467 undergraduate students to take part in an experiment. They were asked which among many statements applied to them. \"When in a large unfamiliar shopping center, I try to get my bearings as quickly as possible\" (obviously a hunter.) Or \"I like to see a large assortment of colors and styles, and then I can pick the ones that are most like what I want\" (a gatherer.) And so on.

There was, however, one area where the data did not entirely support the hypothesis. The men didn't really think they were out for the kill when asked about shopping. Apparently, there's a lot of difference between the Serengeti and the shopping mall.

But by and large, Kruger insists, the data strongly supported the idea that modern women use skills dating back to their days as gatherers while on shopping expeditions. And men really are still on the hunt. All these centuries later, he adds, that difference persists. Not always, of course. Some men love shopping, and some women hate it, he noted, but the masses generally conform to his expectations.

Why should anyone care Kruger hopes this bit of knowledge will help some men and women understand the differences between the genders a little better, thus easing the trauma of shopping. That's apparently already the case in parts of Europe. 59ce067264
